Adventure Park, Ripley | Splash’n’Play
A new Adventure Park, together with a Splash’n’Play zone, in South Ripley, Providence, screams a fun day out with water play and wondrous climbing opportunities suited to all ages.
Adventure Park Ripley – The Fun
Ipswich playgrounds continue to set a standard that needs to be the benchmark for South East Queensland. This wonderful adventure playground and waterpark was designed by Urban Play playground designers and built by JMAC Construction. Through the collaboration of developers, designers and builders, a playground of a great standard has been created for what is young, growing community. Imagine being a child and seeing a custom built skywalk 7 metres off the ground! Imagine spotting 2 very tall tubular slides – one straight, one spiral – just begging to be slid!
Kids can explore, climbing up and flying out of slides in a safe way, thanks to the clever design which provides safety netting at all angles. The enclosed slippery slides add to the safety. There is a cable run (better known as a flying fox) that has a long satisfying run along the playground edge. Nearby, a shaded toddler playground offers nets, swings, climbing features and even a garden-themed sea-saw. Better still, the playground is not designed for children exclusively and was instead built to encourage parent involvement (as well as lots of seating for close supervision). With the diversity in play, families are spoilt for choice all year round, from the cool depths of winter through to the harsh heat of summer, with 80% of all water play undercover.
The multi-age Splash’n’Play area at Providence Ripley offers fountains and water play features usually reserved for fee entry aquatic centres. With wiggly sprayers that can be controlled by kids, and a bigger kids zone with water shooters, this is an exciting place for kids to be. It is the ultimate in free play for kids, outdoors, with climbing, water and fun.
Providence Ripley Adventure Playground has been constructed to allow kids of all ages to explore their potential in a multi-sensory way. From climbing, spinning, falling and waterplay right through to the diverse underfoot coverings, all of these elements will ensure the experience is one that challenges their growing imagination.
Providence Adventure Park offers wide flat concrete pathways that are wheelchair and pram accessible. The only stairs are those that are going up to the shops. There are toilets and showers.
